During 1969, I was employed as a program manager for an aerospace firm. Upon returning to California from an eastern business trip, I was informed that several anticipated contracts had failed to materialize and a major reduction in personnel was necessary. My duties were to be assumed by our general manager, and I was given two weeks to find new employment. The abruptness of this decision caught me somewhat by surprise, and I was immediately beset with fear that I would not be able to find comparable employment in the aerospace industry or might be unemployed for an extended period of time.

Recognizing the error of this thought, I immediately turned to my Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy for help and guidance. Two thoughts quickly caught my eye. The first was from Isaiah (41:10): "Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness." The second was from Miscellaneous Writings by Mrs. Eddy (p. 307): "Never ask for to-morrow: it is enough that divine Love is an ever-present help; and if you wait, never doubting, you will have all you need every moment."
